XBee is good; Synapse is just better. More I/O, embedded python, and generally better range at comparable cost! This particular module is 2.4GHz with OTA (Over-The-Air) speeds up to 2Mbps, maximum 450M (1500') range and a chip antenna for compact installation.


Description [Hide]

No doubt about XBee - proven, solid and robust. But Synapse modules are that much better! These small, low-power, transceiver modules, commonly run in the 915MHz & 2.4GHz spectrums, have a maximum extended range of up to three miles LOS (Line-Of-Sight) and the lowest power consumption in the industry. These RF Engines come pre-loaded with the SNAP® network operating system which allows the nodes to be natively mesh networked. Typical applications include wireless serial port(s), sensor monitoring, actuator control, or an intelligent embedded controller - the possibilities are limitless. Synapse takes 802.15.4 Zigbee/XBee style communication one step further, and makes it smart.

This particular RF module includes a user programmable (via python-based scripts), embedded ATmega128RFA1 microcontroller that can be programmed for all kinds of applications including remote sensor monitoring, or peripheral activation. 

Notable Features Include

  • Very high communication speeds (up to 2Mbps)
  • Built-in Python interpreter (who needs a microcontroller?)
  • Wide Low voltage TTL operating range (1.8 - 3.6V)
  • 7 Analog-to-Digital Inputs
  • 6 PWM Outputs
  • 9 Interrupt capable pins
  • Communication options include I2C (TWI) SPI, 2 hardware UARTs
  • Amazingly low power capabilities (0.25uA sleep current)

Feature List

  • RF100 footprint & pinout compatible
  • Embedded ATmega128RFA1 on-board
  • 2 x UART ports for LVTTL serial control or transparent data
  • Able to be configured to wirelessly program Arduino Uno & Mega 2560
  • Socket-able (2mm spacing) or solder-able
  • SNAP, instant-on, self-healing, mesh network operating system
  • 802.15.4 Protocol at 2.4GHz
  • Maximum range performance: 1500ft outdoor range (LOS) at 250kbps
  • 24 pins, with 20 general purpose I/O, 7 of which can be 10-bit A/D inputs
  • 6 pins configurable for PWM, and 9 Interrupt capable pins
  • I2C communication (Pins 19, 20)
  • SPI communication (Pins 14, 15, 16)
  • JTAG communication (Pins 17, 18, 19 , 20)
  • 128k flash memory (58.5k available for user applications)
  • Embedded Python
  • Can be used stand-alone (no additional microcontroller required)
  • Low power mode of 2.5uA with internal timer running
  • Supply voltage: 2.7V~3.6VDC
  • Transmit Current: 22.5mA (Typ)
  • Receive Current: 20.5mA
  • Sleep Current: 0.25uA
  • FCC certified on all 16 channels (2.4GHz)
  • Spread spectrum (DSSS) technology resists noisy environments
